Audience Reviews for Puzzlehead

  • Oct 08, 2015
    Not only does Puzzlehead appear to be set in a dystopia, it looks as if it were filmed in one. As an indie sci-fi movie it is excellent and the filmmakers do a great job of making virtues out of necessities (e.g. make the wooden acting and the low budget a part of the odd and dystopic vibe). While the scoring was surprisingly well-done, overall the sound is poor (as other reviewers have noted). Puzzlehead is not a great film but is great for what it is and I admire the spirit put into it.

    There's really nothing about this that works, to put it bluntly. The characters are lifeless and unappealing. The visual aesthetic is commonplace. The scenario of machine self-awareness (creation vs creator) has already been extensively covered, and this film does nothing to put a fresh spin on any of that. It also floats on a much too level plane, never delving into the abstract or the psyche that makes the inherently bizarre story worth while.

    Great idea of a man, his machine and the love interest they both share but the acting is a bit rough and the dialogue is flat. Not bad for an independant production of what is basically a long Twilight Zone episode.

    This small little film gives us an interpretation of what it is to be human from a robots perspective. Simple but very effective the low budget certainly holds the film back, despite being told of a world where technology is outlawed the film focusses simply on one man and his robot. The performances are very restrained, so much so you can't help but wonder if the acting talent isn't the greatest, or if this is a technique to draw similarities between man and machine. It's slow and interesting, with it's murky grey cinematogrophy painting a view of a crumbling and unsettled society. The most wonderful moments in this film are when roles reverse. Man creates machine to be like him. As the robot advances in intelligence the man becomes frightened and soon tries to hold back the robot, who then becomes more human as he attempts to rebel which soon turns into jealousy and anger. Switching our sympathetic allegiances throughout the film is a tiring feeling, but one that clearly highlights our struggles and failings. More for people who are into film and don't mind a quieter pace.
